We are really proud of our new Costa Calida / Mazarron / Camposol video.
It has taken us many months to film and edit. The film shows the various fishing villages in the Bay of Mazarron, including La Azohia, Isla Plana, Puerto do Mazarron and Bolnuevo.
We also have interviews with residents of Camposol.

Due to a strengthening Pound Sterling, the average property price in Murcia, Spain is now something like 60% cheaper than in 2008.
This is due to the property values having fallen by 50% and a 10% weakening of the Euro. All of this add’s up to a buyers paradise in Spain and in Murcia where there are some excellent bargains to be snapped up.
The following article explains more:
Camposol, which translated is countryside in the sun, is a substantial rural development based around an eighteen hole golf course. The development has more than 5000 homes, a hotel and spa complex, numerous shops, bars and eateries, together with key facilities for example a health centre and banks. Camposol is ideal for both a second home and holiday property, or for full-time occupants. There’s an array of dwellings to choose from, from low maintenance apartments to substantial villas with private pools. There are approximately 3500 long-term occupants, mostly British, but in addition a good number of Spanish and Europeans enjoy homes here too. Mainly because of the large amount of permanent occupants a genuine local community has evolved, with a variety of clubs, charitable groups and social groups having been established.
Obtaining a home in the sun is a dream of many. The Camposol development on the Costa Calida inside southern Spain is a really affordable situation of making that a authenticity. Camposol property has a lot to offer, with something for everybody, be it a low maintenance holiday accommodation or a villa with a pool for long-lasting residence.
JANE SLADE assesses the property market in Spain and discovers it is not all doom and gloom but you do have to watch where you buy The Hondon valley, a hilly, rural enclave of villages and farms 40 miles inland from Alicante has been a peaceful idyll for many Brits who came seeking a place in sunny Spain away from the searing heat and concreted Costas. But since the recession many hit by the poor Euro exchange rate have been forced to sell their villas at rock bottom prices or hand the keys back to the bank.
2013 seems set to become a great year for Spanish property. Most recent reports summarising property sales and rental stats from government and independent sources, indicate that the second half of 2012 observed a rise in worldwide customers aiming to snap up value for money property stock. And there’s several reasons why now’s a good time.
As the international property world prepares itself for a new year in 2013, Spain is wanting interest from new international markets and renewed keenness from normal buyer locations is likely to make for a positive year, pushing on from a good end to 2012.
Agents, developers and property consultants feel interest in each of the top and lower ends of the sector is up, with cash buyers in an specifically strong place, while international buyers and those from outside the EU may find proposed new legislation to grant residency to everyone investing in a property for more than €160,000 especially appealing.
FRED REDWOOD believes taking a putt in a falling market could reap dividends for golfers in search of a place in Spain.
SPAIN needs another golf course development like Bourton-on-the-Water, needs another tea shop. The country is positively congested with these reminders of Spain’s boom years and many of those who have already bought are less than happy. Angry British golfers have complained of broken contracts, substandard homes and lack of promised amenities.
The Spanish government has been edging along a political tightrope as UK buyers put the brakes on their aspirational holiday home purchases. In a country whose property industry accounts for well over 10 per cent of its gross domestic product, the decline in the housing market has had grave repercussions for tourism and the economy. Steady reports of agents and developers going bust, migrant workers being laid off and major developments being postponed indicate that it’s not just foreign buyers feeling the bracing effect of Spain’s property slump. With some agents offering dramatic discounts – in some cases, two for the price of one – to revive flagging sales, unemployment and property devaluation are two of the major concerns now faced by developers and municipal governments alike.
Despite a market slowdown, it may be the ideal time to buy a property in Spain or Portugal, says Ginetta Vedrickas
As the credit crunch bites, buying a golf home is probably the last thing on your mind. The ultimate luxury purchase, traditionally a golf home has been the preserve of the cash rich, yet for those ofus with shallower pockets, this may just be the time to bag a bargain and where better to hunt than in Portugal and Spain?
